If you’re lucky enough to call one of our Gotham Point luxury rentals home, then you already know that this neighborhood is filled with a diverse range of fitness options. From free workouts in the park to accessible gyms with unique classes, your Long Island City apartment is surrounded by plenty of places to get your sweat on, all within a few blocks of your front door. Read on for our top picks:
The F stands for functional training, a mix of circuit and HIIT style workouts geared towards everyday movement; 45 minutes is all it takes to get a sweat-dripping, heart-pumping workout. For F45 fanatics, team training is life changing, and the vibe is energetic, positive, and supportive. Visit their website for a free three-day trial.
Boxing is sweeping the nation as the best total body workout. At Bout, you’ll learn proper stance, footwork, punches, and defense, all while burning over 1,000 calories per class. Train like a fighter, look like a fighter, all without having to get hit like a fighter. Plan to leave de-stressed and very sweaty!
Self-described as a training gym for every body, Nicely Fit Co. helps real people build strength, mobility, and good health for the long run by providing accountability, personalized attention, and custom workout programming in the heart of Long Island City. Offering semi-private or one-on-one personal training, or the ability to work out on your own using top equipment in a private setting, this unique gym has rave reviews for good reason.
For fun, free outdoor fitness classes that double as community networking events, look no further than your own backyard. From May to October, Hunters Point South Park has everything you need to fall in love with LIC, from yoga (Mondays at 6:30 pm) to Zumba on the waterfront (Tuesdays at 6 pm). Registration is suggested but not required.
No matter where or how you exercise, LIC has all you need to get you up (or out) and moving. If you’re a Gotham Point resident, get ready for the opening of our resident-exclusive, state-of-the-art fitness club this November.
